As I said above, and I'll leave it here; Harbaugh is good, not great.
Bull crap. I guess you didn't see what Harbaugh did for Rich Gannon and the Raiders. QB is the hardest position to coach. Only *elite* coaches can coach that position decently. In addition to Kaep, Luck, Josh Johnson, how about adding Alex, and Gannon. Joe Montana took three years to get to the Super Bowl, Kaep did it in his 2nd year. Explain to me how that isn't a friggen miracle only QB whisperers can make?
Ummm, maybe because Kaep took over a team that had just been to the NFCCG? I mean, this team had been picked to win their division before JH got here... Nobody's saying he's a bad coach (I wonder why everyone assumes the extremes, even when the OP said he thinks JH is a good coach, just like they need to defend Kaep when nothing had was said about him), only that maybe he's not a "QB whisperer."
Maybe I should explain this differently: nobody is saying Kaep is bad, or not the QB of the future, nobody is saying JH is a bad coach and needs to be replaced... All we're saying is it's easier to over rate people you like. Which is why every year, every team is going to win the SB, according to their fans.
